Boasting an award-winning gift shop and tempting tea room, this boutique centre for gardeners is horticultural heaven.

Weekend Escapes

Are you ready for a garden centre that bucks the trend prides itself on it’s passion for plants? Welcome to Fairview! No ordinary garden centre, instead it strives to be a ‘centre for gardeners’ . This brilliant, friendly horticultural haven gets it right on every level.

A go-to gardening mecca near Gloucester, Fairview stocks top-quality plants and garden equipment, specialising in hardy plants, fruit trees, herbaceous perennials, trees, shrubs, bedding plants and a whole range of seeds and bulbs. There’s always a friendly face on hand if you need planting advice (if you’re anything like me!) or  need a bit of landscaping guidance, just ask one of the in-store experts.

Plus the nursery is handily laid out in themed rooms to give great inspiration for planting schemes and garden design. Come for the peonies and palms but we guarantee you’ll end up staying for the quirky coffee shop which serves up the most delicious, homemade and locally sourced cakes and hot drinks.

Tucked away in the village of Birdwood near Gloucester since 2009, Fairview has grown into one of those gardening one-stop shops you could spend several hours mooching around.

Don’t forget to visit the gift shop before you go too. This award-winning store has gorgeous gifts for the whole family, including scarves, pictures, seasonal gifts, toys, cards and interior design items for your home, many from local artisan crafters, or snap up on of the pictures from a local artist displaying their work for sale.

If you want to be inspired to grow, design and create the perfect outdoor space, head down to this lovely centre.
